Going both routes. CR1 + K3.

Timeline

Well, Ive read all of the guides on both types of visas and pretty much understand the differences. One is a immigrant visa and one is not, one will get my spouse here with green card in hand and the other one will make him wait a few months to get it after we file to adjust status. One will permit him to work as soon as he arrives, and one will require him to get his ssn and his ead first, which may take a couple months or more. One is generally a bit slower....I'd say round-about CR1= Total of 1 and half years .vs. K3= Total of 7-9 months, which makes k3 obviously the quicker one, am I right?

For the cr1 I will need to simply file my i130 and wait for noa1 and then noa1 which may take a total of 6 months or more. Then when the case is accepted and transferred to the nvc it may take another 6 months...or more to go on and then we would be sent the DS packets and other requirements. Then interview???

For the k3, I would need to file the i130, then after receiving noa1 I believe...I would need to send in i129f?Then same procedure....please do correct me if I'm wrong???

My question is.....would it be better to go with both? I don't think my husband will have any problem getting his ssn, ead and then his status adjusted if need be. But I also want to go with the cr1 visa because of the ease of mind it provides. But my main issue is...getting him here as soon as possible. What way would be best for us?

If we were to go both ways....how would we do this? Where can I learn how to step by step do both in proper timing, so that I can also make some time to go see my husband in pakistan and possibly add some living together time....or evidence of an ongoing marital relationship? I'm very confused and hoping for someone who could possibly just shine some more light on this for me....I really miss my husband and need him to be with me as soon as can be. :luv:

Any ideas?

Lots of people have been sending in the I-129F and the I-130 at the same time and receiving approval at the same time. If you "stay on top" of the I-130 when it's at NVC people have got in and out of NVC in as little as 19 days. Check Ling Che short cuts for NVC.


K1 denied, K3/K4, CR-1/CR-2, AOS, ROC, Adoption, US citizenship and dual citizenship

!! ALL PAU!
